With the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Amateur Motocross National Championship at Loretta Lynn underway, we’re going to provide you with a written recap highlighting each day’s best moto action. Here’s what we learned on Thursday’s third day of racing at the Ranch.
In the second 250 B class race of the week, Matti Jorgensen (KTM) hoped to back up his strong run from race one as Haiden Deegan (Yamaha) and Evan Ferry (Yamaha) hoped for better luck. Ferry crashed on the opening lap before charging for a possible third place, and Deegan, who hit Ferry’s bike by accident, officially scored 38th after a damaged rear wheel caused him to stop early in the lap. the race. When the gate fell on moto two, Ferry grabbed the holeshot ahead of Daxton Bennick (KTM), Jorgensen, Dayton Briggs (KTM) and Julien Beaumer (KTM). Deegan and Preston Boesflug (Kawasaki) were battling as they started to work their way into the top ten. At first, Beaumer’s bike started to smoke, then Jorgensen crashed into the corner on his way back to the storyland section of the track.
Deegan worked his way up to fourth, then Bennick made a pass on Ferry as they entered the story world. Deegan was chasing Beaumer, coming out of the sand section and launching his Yamaha YZ250F towards the blue banner Yamaha! The No. 38 fought his way to third place, as Bennick continued to lead Ferry. After a few quick laps, Deegan was able to catch Ferry and land a pass in the Ten Commandments. Deegan tried to catch the #41 in front, setting his fastest lap of the race (1:53) on the last lap! Bennick held on for the win but with a few laps ahead of him he misunderstood and thought he had one lap to go so he took another! Deegan was just a few bike lengths behind No. 41 and saw the checkered flag and retired. It was a big win for Bennick as it was his first big win on the bike. Bennick’s 4-1 leads the pack over Ferry’s 3-3 and Boespflug’s 2-5. Jorgensen ultimately finished eighth in the race and sits fourth with 1-8 finishes after two races. The final Schoolboy 2 moto will be on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. local time.
